Wedding hairstyles, just like everything else on the bridal checklist, can be difficult to decide on. It's important decision to make because you need hair and makeup that both look and feel wonderful, so you can concentrate an on making the most of your big day! Not only that, there will almost certainly be a ton of official photos, unofficial (read: Facebook) photos and more than one Snapchat... before you even exchange rings. So, yeah, your wedding hair can feel like a really big deal.

To help inspire you, we're zooming in on this gorgeous double chignon with an easy-to-following tutorial. If you like the look of it, you can try it on for size to see if it's your "I do" 'do!

Get the look

Step one
Section off a large chunk of hair at the front and smooth the rest back into a high-ish ponytail.

Step two
Spray the hair at the front with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and tease it from behind to build volume. Smooth the hair back over and curl the ends underneath to form a quiff. Pin it into place, bumping the hair forward slightly as you do so.

Step three
Spray and tease the pony then roll it in towards the quiff. When they're touching, pin it in the middle of your head.

Step four
Spray your hair liberally all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. Spray some more onto the palm of your hand then smooth it over the sides and up over the back to eliminate any flyaways and prevent new ones from appearing. Re-spray your whole style and you're all set!

What do you think? Could this updo be 'the one'?
